actually there is an implementation of the Partition interface for Oracle (here https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1345),
and it enables to "store" ldap entries for that partition (e.g. users.red) into an Oracle Database 
schema. Once you get that schema you can load the predefined tables with your entries via PL/SQL.

If instead you would like to query your business tables on ldap searches you probably need to create your
own Partition implementation. http://directory.apache.org/apacheds/1.5/61-how-to-write-a-simple-custom-partition-for-apacheds.html

Those links are about version 1.5 of Apache DS.

I try to use Apache Directoy as a proxy ldap to access data in another
ldaps. But I've read that it's also possible to connect to RDBMS, like
Oracle database.

What I try is to access ApacheDS and ApacheDS searchs the information in his
own database tree, send the request to another ldap or even send the request
to oracle database and returns the result as a search of ldap.

persons.com --> Search in ApacheDS.
servers.prg --> Search in ldap1
admin.org --> Seach in ldap2.
users.red --> Search in Oracle database.

Can any tell me if it is possible and some example of how to do it?
